Add a bolero or shrug to your summer dresses and stay warm!

Many of you may be aware of how much I love the bolero and shrug sweater or jacket.
Here are some resources for these items shown below:

Goodwill is where is often find some real gems like this silk floral sundress. Yes, I wear a slip dress under this garment as it is unlined and fairly sheer without it. Please wear your slips ladies! I bought this dress with my mom and later wore it to the BBQ I hosted.
Successories in the Button Box in Noe Valley. This sweet shop is where I found the ivory cashmere shrug. The shop is filled with hand made jewelry, scarves made by local designers and has a tiny room in the back where I find some incredible goodies. This is one of my secret shops that I’m sharing with you. Enjoy!

Synergy Organic Clothing is where I bought this really fabulous light grey dress with cowl neckline. The dress can actually be worn backwards and the back has a lower scoop neckline and cinched waist.

Miranda Caroligne Blue Dress made from repurposed men’s sweaters! I am the happy owner of several of Miranda’s dresses. These dresses attract much attention when I wear them. I was once approached by a woman in Boston as I walked down Newbury street with my mother.

Uko of Hayes Valley is where is bought this very flattering teal dress for a mere $50 bucks! I love the A-symetrical hemline, the style of a wrap dress without it actually being a wrap dress.

Mother’s Day

My Family
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to share with you two amazing mom’s,
my sister, Dianna and my Ma.
These two gorgeous women inspire me to have faith
and to follow my ambitions to the fullest.

It is with their unconditional support and love that give me the strength and courage to move through challenges and believe in myself.

They are mothers, teachers, healers and leaders.
They do it all with style, grace and humor.

I couldn’t be more honored to call them Ma and Sister.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I love you!
